Default Office Excel 2007 won't open xlr files

G'day all,
I recently went from XP to Vista which has Office Excel 2007. The problem is that I saved spreadsheets from excel 2003 that saved as XLR files. The 2007 excel is supposed to open these files but it won't . There seems to be plenty of information on reading 2007 files with 2003 programs but not the reverse. Can I open them in a computer that has excel 2003 and save or convert the files to xlsx?
Hope someone can help, old dog.

This looks like what you need.

If that appears too scary, google docs will open your excel 2003 spreadsheets. I'm not sure if you can convert them.
Also Open Office v3 supports both older office and newer office file types. http://www.openoffice.org/
